St-Aubin 1er Cru "Les Perrières"

50 years old

The vineyard is located in the village of Saint Aubin, in the south of the Côte de Beaune. Soil : Limestone and a little clay. The subsoil is composed of different limestone layers (pebbles, marly soils). Medium slope with south exposure. 100% chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. The grapes are wholly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a cold settling and gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks (15% of new oak). The primary and malolactic fermentations can then begin with wild yeasts.

The ageing is long on fine lees during 14 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and gently filtered before bottling it following the lunar calendar ("fruit” day to get a wine on freshness and minerality).

A wine very mineral with volume. A floral nose. In mouth, we can feel a well-integrated acidity and a long aftertaste.
